Disney’s D23 Expo to Offer First Preview of Vader Immortal: Episode II
Did you buy an Oculus Quest just so you could play Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series? Have you been reading every bit of information released regarding episode two? Well for those die-hard fans eager to get an early look at Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode II then you’ll need to get down to Disney’s D23 Expo later this month.
ILMxLAB will be giving fans an exclusive preview of Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode II during a panel discussion at the expo. Director Ben Snow, Senior Experience Designer Jose Perez III, and Lucasfilm Story Group Creative Executive Matt Martin will be on stage to talk about the upcoming episode which still doesn’t have a release date.
Unless someone sneakily records it, the exclusive preview will only be shown to those attending the panel, so if you can’t wait to find out you’ll need to attend. But you’ll need to be quick as the three-day tickets are sold out. Luckily, the panel is being held on Friday, 23rd August and there are still single-day tickets for the Friday available for $79 USD (D23 Gold Member) or $89 (non-D23 Gold Member).
New details were released last week during the San Diego Comic-Con for Vader Immortal: Episode II, such as the importance of Force powers in the next instalment, as well as some teasing concept art showcasing the shadowy Black Bishop. Briefly seen in the first episode the Black Bishop will play a more prominent role as you delve deeper into the ancient fortress.
While Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode II will most likely be a standard trailer, the D23 Expo will have some virtual reality (VR) content on show. VRFocus reported last month that guests will be able to enjoy a VR experience putting them inside Broadway productions of Aladdin, Frozen and The Lion King.
There will be a massive amount going on at D23 Expo, providing fans with unprecedented access to Disney films, television, games, theme parks, and celebrities for three days if they can handle it. Should any further VR content be revealed for the event, VRFocus will let you know.
